Multiple TV shows and movies are shutting down production amid the coronavirus pandemic. Ron D. Moore’s For All Mankind is one of those shows.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, multiple TV shows and movies have put production on hold. For some shows, it’s the end of their seasons and they won’t return after the hiatus. Others will come back once it is safe to do so. For All Mankind is one of the latter.
Ron D. Moore’s alternate history space race series certainly gained high praise for its storytelling. Apple TV+ quickly granted it a second season, which is what is currently being filmed. It’s among the many Apple TV+ shows currently on hold. Deadline announced on Mar. 13 that all Apple TV+ shows currently in production have been temporarily shut down.
It comes amid many other TV shows closing down production. All three NCIS shows, the One Chicago shows, Grey’s Anatomy and many more primetime shows have put a hold on production. Many of these have decided to end the season early, about one or two episodes short of normal. Grey’s Anatomy has decided to postpone filming for two weeks to see where things are after that.
Apple isn’t the only streamer closing down production on all shows. Netflix recently made the decision to close down production too. It probably won’t be long before all TV shows are put on hold for the time being.
This is just a temporary measure to help prevent the spread of the disease. Production for many shows, including For All Mankind, will pick back up as soon as it is safe to do so.
What about Outlander? Season 6 hasn’t started filming yet. Filming is due to start in late April or early May according to previous reports. The producers will keep an eye on things to see whether production needs to be delayed further. Hopefully, by the time filming needs to start, the coronavirus will have halted due to the precautions taken now.
For All Mankind Season 1 is available to stream on Apple TV+
